No new ground but a great show
We we're all so happy to be there again, throughout all of these shows. I was lucky to make it to all 4(mail order and got a Christmas card from the Dead that year, too!). Garcia's voice was rejuvenated and the musical exploration was starting anew; sometimes like baby steps and then gaining confidence. The Hamza El-Din, Nevilles support team helped to push this show into one of the greats. Haven't heard this for a while, but I like this recording, so far better than the rest of the audience recordings.
